Certainly not. However, it is also easier for people to say "hi bot, I'm
still active" than it is for them to remember whether or not they've
voted in the last two years when a new vote comes up.
As a Belgian citizen, with our laws on compulsory voting, I already have
a legal requirement to participate in one particular voting system.
